"Local governments play a critical role in tackling the biggest challenges we face, from combating the COVID-19 pandemic to reducing carbon emissions. At Bloomberg Philanthropies, we’re working hard to help cities develop effective strategies – and to spread them around the world. The Bloomberg Cities Network, which we developed in partnership with Johns Hopkins, is a place for innovators in government to come together and hear about what’s working, share lessons, and access resources. We hope you will take full advantage of it – and that it will allow you to expand your ambitions and accelerate your work."
